EU Cybersecurity Directive finalised
Thu 21 Jan 2016, 07:20

The European Union has finalised its first pan-European cybersecurity rules. The Directive on the Security of Network and Information Systems (NIS) is part of the EU cybersecurity strategy launched in 2013.

The NIS Directive requires EU member states to develop and implement strict security and notification requirements for “operators of essential services” such as internet exchange points, and more flexible rules for so-called digital service providers, meaning companies that provide cloud computing services, online search engines, and online marketplaces. As we discuss below, there are potential risks for privacy in this approach.

A consultation procedure was initiated on 15 February 2018 to discuss and gather ideas and recommendations for the future Cybersecurity Act, which will aim to transpose the NIS Directive concerning measures for a high common level of security of network and information systems across the Union.
